Stream Avatarium’s Debut Album In Full Exclusively With Terrorizer
Swedish doom titans Avatarium are streaming their stunning self-titled debut album in its entirety, exclusively with Terrorizer.
The band’s all-star lineup (featuring legendary doom metal pioneer Leif Edling (Candlemass) on bass, Marcus Jidell (Evergrey) on guitar, Carl Westholm (Candlesmass) on keyboards, Lars Sköld (Tiamat) on drums and singer extraordinaire Jennie-Ann Smith) have struck gold with this one, a powerful and progressive doom journey that will have fans of Blood Ceremony and Jex Thoth foaming at the mouth.
Guitarist Marcus Jidell had this to say about the making of ‘Avatarium’:
“We had been looking for feeling rather than trying to make everything technically perfect. Everything really came together the first day Jennie-Ann came in the studio and sung ‘Moonhorse.’ She had everything we looked for in a singer: Rock ‘n’ Roll attitude, Jazz and Blues feel, a big and powerful voice, and yet so able to be fragile and extremely tender in her interpretation of the songs.”
